Jon L.wrote a review of ZOIC Ether Shorts + Essential Liner - Men's on September 9, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Having always had cheap shorts these are a major upgrade. What a difference in wicking, breathability and comfort. Also the zippers seem to be flawless, which cheaper shorts always seem to have issues with. Nothing more frustrating than going pack less and worrying about loosing your key.
Get a color you can wear while not biking, you'll want to wear them more. I've used for kayaking, biking, and day trips and they have been holding up great. Over 50miles of single track miles on them, look like new.
5-10 160lb 32 jeans and I fit the medium. They have an adjustable waistband but they are snug all the way loose.
Length is just above my knee and the pad is the best fitting I have ever worn. Likely going to buy another pair next Backcountry sale.
